Just A short distance along and to the right is Hadrian’s Gate that was built to commemorate the Empror’s visit to Antalya in AD 130 its construction is made from marble and it has three arches that all have coffered ceilings that have been decorated with rosettes. Behind Hadrian’s Gate is the Old Town – A maze of small narrow winding streets which makes up the old quarter, here you can see the overhanging the wooden balconies of old dilapidated houses lean companionable towards each other like in ancient gossips exchanging the latest scandal, sometimes through a gap in a crumbling wall you can glimpse an overgrown garden where a few neglected orange trees produced shrivelled, bitter fruits. As we are walking around in the old town of Antalya you will see Kesik Minaret Mosque (broken Minaret) and the ruined mosque beside it was transformed from Byzantine Church by Seljuks. At the far end of the city is Hidirlik Tower which is situated on the sea front with magnificent views of all over the city, the gulf of Antalya, and also the rugged Taurus Mountains.

As the day starts to close in we will make our last stop to visit the Seljuk bridge that goes over Koprucay (Eurymedon) and dates from the 13’th century AD, this bridge is still used to this day, and it was this bridge that replaced a 2C Roman bridge, whose ruins may be seen in the river-bed a few metres to the North. A tentative reconstruction of the 5m wide Roman bridge, whose central span was 9m above the water so it shows that large sea going ships could have passed underneath it on their way to the docks. In relation to its Seljuk successor it was a veritable giants.
